Bundle of Joy

Cute novelty prints and soft pastels make this a perfect baby quilt! A directional banner print was carefully cut so it always is waving in the same direction. Fabrics are from Tiny Menagerie by Heather Rosas for Camelot Fabrics.

Assemble Unit A

Quilt tester Laura Boehnke used a directional print of brown bunting for the large triangles in Unit A. If you’re using a directional fabric also, before making units lay out your pieces on a design wall, then piece carefully in order to ensure all of your fabrics will go in the desired direction.

1. Referring to Diagram 1, sew white dot small triangles to adjacent edges of a blue animal print 2-1⁄2" square. Press seams toward white dot. Add a brown bunting print large triangle to long edge to make a pieced triangle-square. Press seam toward large triangle. The pieced triangle-square should be 4-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight pieced triangle-square total.

2. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together a blue fur print 2-1⁄2" square and white dot 2-1⁄2" square in a horizontal row; press seam open. Add horizontal row to top edge of pieced triangle-square; press seam open.

3. Referring to Diagram 2, join a pink tone-on-tone 2-1⁄2" square, blue fur print 2-1⁄2" square, and white dot 2-1⁄2" square in a vertical row. Press seams open. Add vertical row to left-hand edge of pieced triangle-square to make Unit A. Press seam open. Unit A should be 6-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make eight total of Unit A.
